Are law review articles worthwhile?

An article in the February ABA Journal concludes that law review articles do have value. Its author, Richard Brust, reiterates Chief Justice John Roberts’ recent criticism that law review articles are unhelpful. But then Brust cites a recent study by Professors Lee Petherbridge of Loyola of Los Angeles and David Schwartz of Chicago-Kent, which showed that 32.21% of U.S. Supreme Court decisions in the years 1929-2009 cited legal scholarship. Brust concludes that “legal scholarship is more useful than many judges suspect.”
